From the National Pediatric Disaster Coalition: Supply Chain Disruptions: Impacts on Vulnerable Communities
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a workshop, on September 12, 2023, focused on understanding the impacts of supply chain disruptions on vulnerable communities (i.e., groups that face greater risk and impact from supply chain disruptions due to pre-existing socioeconomic disadvantages, geographic isolation, inadequate infrastructure, and health challenges, including but not limited to low-income neighborhoods, remote rural communities, elderly populations, communities of color, people with disabilities, and coastal regions) and the human and social impacts.
